Quotation: from 'An Open Letter to the Clergy' (1914)

"Truly did St. John say, 'the light shineth in darkness, but the darkness comprehended it not.' Does our 20th century darkness comprehend it now? Does the Church understand to-day that a Christianity founded upon carnivorous customs is a contradiction in terms and the destruction of the dumb creation is a perpetual crucifixion of the Lord of life and a continual violation of the law of love?" Published in The Vegetarian (July 1914 edition)
